Big relief for Peninah Malonza after Parliament approved her appointment as Ruto’s Cabinet Secretary


The National Assembly has saved Peninah Malonza whose nomination to the Ministry of Tourism was in limbo, following her rejection by the vetting committee in a report on Tuesday.

The committee had unanimously rejected the nomination of Malonza as Tourism CS, saying she lacks requisite experience and abilities to serve in the docket

Yesterday, Parliament approved all the 24 cabinet secretary nominees unveiled by President William Ruto .

On Tuesday, the house Committee on Appointments was also  divided over the nominations of Aisha Jumwa (Public Service), and Mithika Linturi (Agriculture).

Linturi’s nomination had hit headwinds over his failure to present his academic degree and pending court cases.

Jumwa’s nomination on the other hand, was overlooked owing to a pending court case in which she is accused of fatally shooting a man in 2019 during the Ganda Ward by-election.

According to the Committee, Jumwa’s claims that she does not own a gun or a firearm license was not satisfactory to prove her innocence and earn her a ministerial docket.

This  developments now paves way for the Cabinet Members to be sworn to office as per the constitution.

The nominees will assume office by swearing in next month.
